I've added a new article to the Research Section of the Library on this web site which is a 2012 Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)–sponsored Independent Task Force report on U.S. Education Reform and National Security. The direct link to the article is http://www.cfr.org/united-states/us-education-reform-national-security/p27618
